About This Book

Confucius, whose Chinese name is Kong Qiu, is a celebrated ancient Chinese thinker, political figure, educator and founder of Confucianism. His teachings and philosophy, preserved in the Analects of Confucius, have not only served as the foundation of much of subsequent Chinese speculation on an ideal man and government, but also deeply influenced Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese life and thought. Qufu, the birthplace of Confucius, has become a major destination for cultural tourism. Kong Temple, the Kong residence and Kong forest in particular present a fine exhibition of China's temples and its ancient scholarly life, its gardens and its tombs. A beautifully illustrated guide, this book takes the reader on an evocative cultural tour through captivating temples, palaces and gardens.
